Women's Center Library

The Women's Center’s lending library is available to students, staff, faculty and community members. The space resembles a cozy living room where people can study, relax, nap, and enjoy the convenience of computer access. 

We offer over 4,000 volumes in collections of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, with a focus on gender, race, sexuality, ability, class, religion, and much more. In addition, we subscribe to a variety of magazines such as Bust, MS., Hyphen, Make-Shift, Shameless, Working Mother, Brain Child, and Bitch.  Our film collection is comprised of 50 films on topics such as sexual harassment, body image, advertising and women in the media (and) masculinity. 

All members of the UCSD community are welcome to register for and borrow books from the library. For more information about how to register and view our searchable database of library holdings, please visit the Women's Center Online Library Database. We welcome your book recommendations, as well as book donations (titles published after 2015 are preferred).  Please contact Jess Geipel with comments and/or questions about our library.
